Recordings, compositions, and projects
Tara's grand prize-winning composition, "Song for Philip Guston," performed by Carl Patrick Bolleia at the New Jersey Arts Collective awards ceremony, Montclair Art Museum, 5/24/12. This composition was inspired by Philip Guston's 1979 painting 'Untitled #142'. It was required to be one minute or less. See Tara's compositional statement for the explanation of her approach.
"Brave Face," with lyrics culled from Jean Marie Whaley's Facebook posts, and music by Tara Buzash.
